Mian Laboratory


We are exploring the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms underlying lethal cancers of the genitourinary tract with the goal of translating discovery in to novel therapies. Our approach couples translational research to clinical investigation in GU malignancies at Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute. We are developing powerful tools for identifying predictive and prognostic biomarkers as well as for therapeutic target discovery. The mission of our lab is to reduce the burden of prostate and bladder cancer through fundamental discovery and to improve the lives of cancer patients.

Department of Defense Awards $2.4M for Bladder Cancer Immunotherapy Research

Cleveland Clinic is one of the highest volume centers of excellence for bladder cancer research and care in the nation. With a new $2.4 million Translational Team Science Award from the Department of Defense (DoD), physician-scientist and project lead Omar Mian, MD, PhD—as well as partnering investigators Shilpa Gupta, MD, and Tae Hyun Hwang, PhD, and a team of talented collaborators—look to not only bolster Cleveland Clinic’s bladder cancer program, but also its rapidly expanding portfolio of immuno-oncology research.
